What's not to love about Toronto?
This vibrant city is the perfect location whether you want the relaxed pace of a smaller community or the urban hustle and bustle. It's one of the safest cities in the world with diverse cultural and leisure activities that make our home a world-class city.
Toronto is known as "Hollywood North" offering studios and celebrities all the sophistication of New York and Los Angeles without all the hassle. Our city is famous for the most important film festival after Cannes --Toronto International Film Festival.
It has become the launching pad for the best of international, Hollywood and Canadian cinema. Surprisingly, the GTA is actually larger than Chicago and is the third largest centre of live theatrical stage productions in the world after London and New York. Places like the Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario and Rogers Centre, make Toronto a destination city for international cultural exhibitions and performers. There's an abundance of cultural activities, big and small, for all ages and tastes.
Our diverse mix of people makes us one of the most multicultural cities in the world. You can enjoy the charm of Little Italy or the exotic aromas of Little India. Revel in the Caribbean rhythms during Caribana, the largest cultural festival of its kind in North America. Or, enjoy the delicacies of Greece during our Taste of the Danforth Festival. Toronto is sure to satisfy any flavour you savour.
Toronto boasts one of North America's largest recreational waterfronts with family-friendly attractions like Harbourfront, Ontario Place, the CN Tower and Toronto Islands. It's also a scenic backdrop for events like The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche and the Canadian National Exhibition. Sports fans can enjoy the waterfront just steps away from popular sports venues like the Air Canada Centre or Rogers Centre to cheer on the City's beloved teams, including the Maple Leafs, Blue Jays and Raptors.
Within this perfect urban mix, Toronto also offers an abundance of nature. There are five watersheds with trail networks for you to run, bike, hike, and even horseback ride! You'll find winding trails through forests, across wildflower meadows and along rivers, wetlands and ponds. You'll discover herons, hawks, deer, rabbits, muskrats, butterflies and other assorted wildlife when you venture out on these beautiful trails. Each season offers a palate of exciting colours and scents worthy of exploring throughout the year.
Whatever your craving Toronto has it. That's why we love our city.
